Wannabe Jalva closed out the year with a slot opening for Pearl Jam and at Zequinha Stadium (20,000 capacity). Pearl Jam hand selected Wannabe Jalva after considering a number of Brazilian bands for the opening slot. Receiving great feedback from critics and Brazilian music blogs, Wannabe Jalva’s live following grew throughout Brazil via extensive touring in 2012. After the big gig, they began to work on new material.
Countless nights were spent locked inside Rafael’s large glass-windowed basement, overlooking the coastal cityscape. The band found themselves locked in a lo-fi groove, oscillating from explosive to intimate sounds, with walls of reverb driving through simple grooves. This journey through sidereal environments and textures became the foundation for Collecture. Wannabe Jalva announces the release of their new record Collecture, due out on October 15th, 2014. The release will feature five brand new songs: “One Way Street,” “Miracle,” “Mainline,” “Melt” and “Down The Sea.” It was recorded in their hometown Porto Alegre, largely in Rafael’s basement and between Gogó Conteúdo Sonoro and MuBemol Studio.
Brian Lucey, who is responsible for the mastering on The Black Keys’ Grammy winning album Brothers, mastered Collecture. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
